Understanding melt flow is a key indicator for producers, processors and converters of plastic materials as it dictates the temperatures and pressures required to manufacture consistent quality products
The Hanatek MFI is one of the most advanced instruments available for the measurement the melt characteristics of thermoplastic polymers.
Actual barrel temperature can be measured to ensure that every test is performed with complete compliance to ASTM D1238 (2011) Part A, B or C and ISO 11133 (2011) with full test documentation.

The Hanatek FT3 Precision Thickness Gauge is specifically designed to quickly and accurately measure the thickness of a variety of substrates including film, paper, board, foil, tissue and textiles.

 

The Hanatek Variable Force Precision Thickness Gauge FT3-V is specifically designed to quickly and accurately measure the thickness of a variety of substrates including film, paper, board, foil, tissue and textiles.

 

The Hanatek Rub and Abrasion tester brings new levels of repeatability and convenience to testing the durability of inks and coatings on any printed material. The instrument is used for testing the scuff, marking and rub resistance of cartons, films and commercial printed material.

The Hanatek Advanced Friction tester is the most comprehensive tool available for measuring the coefficient of friction of plastic film, printed cartons, packaging substrates or paper. This flexible instrument can also be used to measure and display the frictional values of any flat surface including rubber, flooring plastics textile and leather. In addition to providing static and dynamic slip values for a surface, the instrument allows the full friction force output to be displayed, stored and compared. This unique ability helps a manufacturer to relate the feeding and running speeds of a product to its surface characterisitcs. The instrument is availabe with optional extras to measure peel strength of adhesives, tear strength of substrates and the blocking of plastic films and coated cartons.
